The Australian Museum in Sydney today made the exciting announcement of the largest exhibition ever to come to Australia from the State Hermitage in St. Petersburg, Russia ‘Alexander the Great: 2000 years of Treasures’. The collection includes over 400 objects across a period of 2500 years, one of the most notable is the famous Gonzaga cameo which displays the profile of Alexander the Great and Olympias.
Alexander the Great came to the throne in 336 BC and during his reign built the largest empire in history spanning from Greece to the Indus River in India. This exhibition is a great asset to the City of Sydney and Australia with the potential to provide great benefits for the tourism industry. The rare exhibition is expected to attract visitors both nationally and internationally to Sydney.
The exhibition is exclusive to the Australian Museum in Sydney and will open from 24 November 2012 for a limited time.
